We're back!! Now when do I get a vacation???

Disney World was according to my children "awesome", which means I have done my job well. :) Brian and I on the other hand are exhausted. So I am now wondering....when do I get a vacation???? I know, I know, when I retire....right?? Even if I'm wrong, let me live in ignorance for the next 22 odd years until I get there. :)

Pictures speak a thousand words, and if I haven't made it clear already, I am here in a picture fest is our vacation... :)

Ricky showing how happy he is to be at Disney World...

Help! A shark ate my boys!!

Matthew staring as Sleeping Beauty's prince!! (What a cute couple!)Noah preparing for Driver's Ed...(according to him, he is an excellent driver)

Light Weights!!! (Ha!)

Quality Dad time...except for Ricky...too busy trying to catch lizards..... Mama's boys...yes I am aware that I have several chins...did I mention I'm thinking of starting weight watchers soon??

The whole family (minus the girls) Hollywood Studios....

My home...not at Disney World....

Don't you just love hand me down clothes? My girls were soooo happy to get a bag full from cousin Bella! Ruby couldn't wait to put on some new duds, and ALL of the baggy full of "pretties" in her hair!

That's all for now, I'll post more Disney pics as I unwind and get the time.

God is good. All the time.

And the Winner is...!!!

I guess in blogland I would be considered a blog loser. I do not have people begging me to post helpful hints, or bits of witticism. I'm thinking it may this way since I have no helpful hints, and am not nearly as witty as I would like to think. My blog is basically just bits and pieces of my crazy life, and the occasional rant. Even my enticing offer of a Webkinz could not convince a very long list of comment leavers. However, to be true to my word...we had a drawing here!

First we wrote down the names of the lucky comment leavers....
Then we folded them and threw them into a bowl... Next I asked Matthew to put the bowl on his head...

Matthew was Ricky filled inAnd pulled out the lucky winner of a new white mouse lil' kinz!!!

Yea Heather! I'll get that little white mouse out to you at our next 1/2 friend/sisterly sis convention!

Thank you for your lovely comments!!!

God is good. All the time.

Happy Birthday Ricky!

It's hard to believe the my once tiny ten pound eight ounce baby boy is now a baseball slingin' football playing, grown up steak eatin' seven year old. We had a Chuck E. Cheese party for friends on Sunday, and today we went to the sprinkler park in Canton, and out to dinner. Ricky picked Lone Star...and insisted on ordering a "grown up" steak. He ate it ALL and his salad, and his potato...maybe football isn't such a good idea after all!

In honor of his birthday, here are the top seven things I love about Ricky...

1. His beautiful blue eyes.

2. His tender heart.

3. His laugh.

4. His ability to make friends wherever he goes.

5. He is so very smart!

6. The way he still plays with his hair when he's tired.

7. The fact that he is still my snuggle long as his friends aren't looking!

I could go on and on, but the fact of the matter is that I think that I am one of the luckiest moms in the world to be blessed with such a wonderful son.

Happy birthday kiddo!!
